Born in the U.S.A. by Bruce Springsteen– Lyrics with Chords

[Verse]
B
Born down in a dead man's town
N.C.
The first kick I took was when I hit the ground
E
End up like a dog that's been beat too much
N.C.
Till you spend half your life just covering up

[Chorus]
B
Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
      E                                     B
I was born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A. now

[Verse]
B
Got in a little hometown jam
N.C.
So they put a rifle in my hand
E
Sent me off to a foreign land

To go and kill the yellow man

[Chorus]
B
Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
      E                                     B
I was born in the U.S.A., born in the U.S.A. now

[Verse]
B
Come back home to the refinery
N.C.
Hiring man said "Son if it was up to me"
E
Went down to see my V.A. man
                                    | B | B | B | B | E | E | E | E |
He said "Son, don't you understand"
B
I had a brother at Khe Sahn
N.C.
Fighting off the Viet Cong
E
They're still there, he's all gone
B
He had a woman he loved in Saigon
                                       | E | E | E | E |
I got a picture of him in her arms now
B
Down in the shadow of the penitentiary
N.C.
Out by the gas fires of the refinery
    E
I'm ten years burning down the road

Nowhere to run ain't got nowhere to go

[Chorus]
B
Born in the U.S.A., I was born in the U.S.A.
E                                                      B
Born in the U.S.A., I'm a long gone Daddy in the U.S.A. now
N.C.
Born in the U.S.A., Born in the U.S.A.
E
Born in the U.S.A., I'm a cool rocking Daddy in the U.S.A. now
